Fond Farewell!

August 24, 2013

IMG_3919WAVE Violet Falkum bids farewell to sailor Matty Melidoni, after leaving Yeoman training camp at Norman, Oklahoma c. 1943. The caption for the photograph reads:

Last minute clutches and hurried good-bye kisses were in evidence everywhere for the Waves that were lucky enough to have their boy-friends at the station to see them off.

The photograph comes from the National Archives.
